Soft Power

{{ event.webContent.titleSuffix }}

May 3 – Jun 10, 2018

Ahmanson Theatre

World Premiere

Hilariously provocative, what begins as a contemporary play slowly becomes a play with music set 150 years in the future in this seductive World premiere by Tony Award® winner David Henry Hwang (Yellow Face, M. Butterfly). A beloved East-meets-West musical, China’s 21st-century rise, and a theatre company gala collide to make mayhem—and some beautiful music. Inspired by the West's often ridiculously inauthentic portrayals of Asia, Soft Power is a Center Theatre Group commission and the first collaboration between two of America's great theatre artists: Hwang and Tony Award-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home).

Soft Power was originally scheduled to appear at the Mark Taper Forum, but the Ahmanson Theatre was a better fit for this thrilling new play that becomes a musical. A replacement at the Taper will be announced soon.
